, everybody. i'm david shuster live in washington. let's get right to the breaking weather news. here in your nation's capital we're experiencing whiteout conditions and it's been that way now for almost eight hours. this is a live look at the white house, which is more like a chameleon thp afternoon. snow couple lapgs ten inches so far today is not as heavy as what got dumped on d.c. over the weekend but the winds are much stronger. the situation is just as bad in parts of maryland. elaine reyez in rockville, 50 minutes out of d.c. elaine, how is it where you are. can you hear us? all right. well, i can tell you from personal experience that out in rockville, maryland, based on what we've been hearing from the local forecasters here at wrc, they are getting more intense storms in the suburbs, pot om ac, rockville, it's heavier. with snow over the weekend and more today, add in strong winds, just how devastating the highways have been in the greater d.c. area. we're told 17,000 people in washington and baltimore are without power, in large part because some of the trees have been coming down

you. >> we're going to go straight to washington, d.c. where we're hearing of a train derailment. brian wilson has more. washington going on? >> if you've been on the metro line, this is the red line at 17th and k, farragut station, a couple blocks from the white house, and we're showing you streaming pictures of what's going on there. apparently there was a 6-car train that derailed underground at farragut north, the front wheels of the car came off but there are 150 to 200 people that need to be removed from that underground situation, from the derailment area, and that is causing a bit of chaos in the downtown washington area right now. traffic has been closed down, metropolitan police department has been moved in to see if they can help out. this comes at a time when metro locally has been under a great deal of fire for safety issues, they've had wrecks, they've had crashes, they've been under a lot of pressure to try to do something to make the place a lot more safe, to make the system work in a more safe fashion. this certainly doesn't help things. but again, underground, n

the end of the political kennedy dynasty in washington. hel hello, everyone. i'm david shuster live in washington. this has been a dramatic day in vancouver even though the competition hasn't started yet. a short time ago a fright think accident during a training run on the luge course. lost control, crashed and went over the wall where he apparently smashed into a pole. the man is undergoing emergency treatment. meanwhile dramo over lindsey vonn. chris jansing in vancouver. chris, what happened on the luge course. >> it was horrifying. people who have been around the luge their whole lives, former medalists saying they have never seen anything like it. he came around turn 16, as i understand it. he hit the wall flying, hit an unpadded pole and almost immediately emergency personnel on the scene. they brought in a helicopter and airlifted him out to the hospital. we are waiting for definitive word on his condition. clearly this was a very serious crash. it's in part of larger context of questions raised about luge and bobsled tracks here. they are clearly the fastest in the world. e
moved away from the president over the last four months it is over health care, wasteful washington spending, deficit and debt. first group, voters 50 to 64. these are people who didn't vote for barack obama, they voted against the republicans. they wanted to send a message to washington in 2008. they've been hard with the unemployment. voters in ohio, indiana, michigan, so-called bread basket, heartland of the country. many have statewide races one of the reasons why evan bayh decided not to run because he faces pressure in washington every time he voted with the democrats the people home in indiana angry. every time he voted for his constituents the democrats in washington got angry. right now obama does not seem to be in the mainstream for voters 50 to 64. the others are independents, people who reject the republican and democratic parties also voted for change in 2006 and 2008. now it looks like they are drifting back to the republican party because the democrats didn't give them the change they voted for. >> sean: publicly, joe biden and nancy pelosi have tan a different postur

, that they won't send the leader, the world leader, to washington? >> right. well, chuck, i think there's a little bit of that and also a little bit of lost in translation. after this press conference early this morning in japan, toyoda was asked several time, are you going to washington. he said, i'm not going. i think we're better served as having the u.s. side for toyota, having him testify, he's more closely aligned in terms of what's happening in terms of the safety issues. later on in his press conference, he clarified that and said, listen, if i am requested i may taensd and answer questions. my sense is, chuck, if members of congress really push the issue, and they say, we want to hear from you, mr. toyoda. if you're come to get united states in the next couple of weeks, we want to hear from you. my sense is that he will likely show up but we'll also have anaba with him, and in terms of what did toyota do, when it knew it, how quick will it did react. those questions will be answered by mr. anaba. >> it seems as if they have all of these american jobs. they're acting as if they'

[applause] >> the next question for all three panelists in no particular order, should the tea party move indoors specific and that customer -- a move that endorse -- movement in doors specific templates? as i said before, you win elections by endorsing something and promoting them and their candidacy. my perspective is that the tea party movement needs to support and endorse candidates to win. otherwise, you will be represented by somebody do not support. if you simply want to agitate, have at it, but that is not how you get people elected. you still have to vote. you need to know about your elected official. in that context, i am very committed to endorsing candidates as an individual.

republicans have denounced democratic legislation in washington for political effect and then admitted in their home districts that that legislation works. it shows not only that democratic policies work and when push comes to shove in their home districts republicans know it. it also shows that republicans care so little about policy that they're okay with holding totally nonsensically contradictory positions on important stuff. dozens of congressional republicans who have praised, say, the stimulus at home while denouncing it in washington seem to be unembarrassed about how two-faced and incoherent it is to have those two positions simultaneously. at least they have seemed to be unembarrassed. tonight i'm pleased to report we have early signs of embarrassment. among those snared in the stimulus hypocrisy web james "mountain" inhofe of oklahoma. last week we noted he proudly attacked the stimulus over the course of the past year but was caught touting stimulus spending in his state as, quote, great news. in light of that reporting senator inhofe has gone for help to a conservative med
are the things that still need to be done. they've been put off by washington for too long. and this is where change gets hard. change is easy if you're just talking about tinkering around the edges. change is harder when you actually dig in and try to deal with the structural problems that have impeded our progress for too long. this is where we run head long into the lobbyists and the special interests and the bitterness and misinformation that characterizes so much of our politics. which means that some of you may be feeling discouraged because it feels like things are taking longer than you might have expected. well, don't be discouraged. i'm not discouraged. i knew this was going to take a long time, but i knew the fight was worth it. and we've got to keep up on this fight. this forces the status quo. they may not give an inch, but i don't give an inch either and you shouldn't give an inch either. we're not -- we didn't come this far to put things off or to play it safe or to take the easy road. >> joining us now is eugene robinson, pulitzer prize winning columnist and an associate edito
